Vóden réunit Marguerite Lersteau au nyckelharpa et David Sévérac à la vielle à roue.
Leur duo – sensible et détonant- interprète un répertoire traditionnel et composé, dans la lignée de leurs influences scandinaves et balkaniques.
Sonnant comme une seule entité, parfois comme mille, l'illusion est donnée par les mélodies et les accords qui s'entrecroisent autour de toutes leurs cordes frottées, tantôt avec douceur ou beaucoup d'énergie.
De Suède en Macédoine, de la polska à la kopanitsa, ils donnent à écouter leur attirance commune pour l'exploration des musiques populaires et la recherche du rythme.

A first album, a subtle mix
Vóden played its first concerts in 2019 and , as you know , was stopped in 2020.
In any case, it cannot be said that it was an uninspired year!
We took the opportunity to give life to an album project, to continue sharing our music with you.
The recordings are finished and it will be 12 beautiful pieces from Sweden, Norway, Turkey, Bulgaria... from the North, the South and from our head. 12 pieces around our main instruments - the nyckelharpa and the hurdy-gurdy – we enjoyed in adding Bulgarian and Anatolian kaval, singing and other surprises...
The release is scheduled for the summer of 2021, and will call Polskanitsa.
To reach the goal, we need your help
The project is not finished yet, we need to realise mix and master first.
Soon, we are going to work on the visual aspect of Polskanitsa with a photographer and a graphic designer.
We would like to share the story of our songs with you and, for that, the album will be accompanied by a booklet.
The last step will be manufacturing before the physical release.
Afterwards, we are crossing our fingers that the concerts planned for the release will be maintained and that others can be announced. Because all this work goes hand in hand with the live scene!
For more information
Vóden brings together Marguerite Lersteau on the nyckelharpa and David Sévérac on the hurdy-gurdy.
Their duo - sensitive and explosive - interprets a traditional and composed repertoire, in line with their Scandinavian and Balkan influences.
Sounding like one entity, sometimes like a thousand, the illusion is given by the melodies and chords that intertwine around all their strings, sometimes with gentleness and sometimes with great energy.
From Sweden to Macedonia, from polska to kopanitsa, they give us the opportunity to listen to their common attraction for the exploration of popular music and the search for rhythm.
